Lopez Tops Girls Division, Wins Back-to-Back Mayakoba Junior Golf Classics
Grimes overcomes three-stroke deficit to claim third AJGA title

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Quintana Roo, Mexico —  Mexico City's Gabriela Lopez carded an even-par 71 Thursday at El Camaleón to win the Girls Division by two shots and claim her second straight victory at the Mayakoba Junior Golf Classic. Patrick Grimes of Palo Alto, Calif., shot a 2-over-par 73 to claim the victory in the Boys Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Mayakoba Junior Golf Classic was a 54-hole, stroke play event held at El Camaleón Golf Club. The field consisted of 70 players, of which 33 were from Mexico. The rest came from eight U.S. states, Spain, Guatemala and England.

Lopez, ranked No. 47 in the Polo Golf Rankings, trailed by two strokes at the beginning of the final round, but with steady play was able to climb to the top of leaderboard. With her win, Lopez became the first back-to-back winner of the event, and remains the only Mexican champion in the tournament's history.

“It feels really good to win because I can put Mexico's name on the top of this tournament,” Lopez said.

In second was Fernanda Villegas of Chula Vista, Calif., who carded a tournament total of 14-over-par 227. Finishing in a tie for third were Frida Castillo of Cordoba, Mexico, and Maria del Mar Saavedra of Las Arboledas, Mexico, each with a tournament total of 17-over-par 230.

Grimes, who won two AJGA events in the 2008 season, began the day with a three-stroke deficit, but fought back to claim the victory. The California native expressed his excitement over the win in Mexico, saying it is special event.

“I love being here and playing this course,” Grimes said. “To win in another country is very meaningful, especially with it being a PGA TOUR course. It's a great test of golf.”

In second was first- and second-round leader Kevin Jorden of Juno Beach, Fla., who shot 7-over-par 220. Following Jorden was Will Davenport of Palm City, Fla., with a 11-over-par 224, and Matthew Fliss of Bellflower, Calif., with a 14-over-par. Rounding out the top five was Sarosh Adi of Frisco, Texas and Jeffrey Meltzer of Bradenton, Fla., with a 15-over-par 228.
